Black violet color. Peppery aromas of fresh huckleberry jam, buttery pie crust, fine furniture, and menthol with a round, crisp, fruity medium-to-full body and a tingling, refreshing, medium-length finish with silky tannins and moderate oak flavor. A lush syrah with a hint of sweetness that makes for a very versatile and attractive wine.

Syrah

Syrah - also known as Shiraz, especially in Australia - is a red wine with rich, zesty plum and blackberry fruit along with a light spicy, sometimes peppery quality. The grape has light to medium tannins, meaning lighter versions are drinkable upon release. This has certainly helped this wine's popularity in the United States.

Full-bodied versions, such as Côte-Rôtie from France's Rhone Valley, are intense, deeply concentrated wines that need many years to round out; these are generally at their best seven to ten years after the vintage and can drink well for 20 years plus from the best vintages.

Recommended foods with Syrah include most red meats, game and barbecued foods.
